  • Interview Questions

    Going above and beyond my comfort zone was the aim that I had for this project. I wanted to think outside of the box and interview someone whom I have not known for a great amount of time. After brainstorming about which person I should seek to interview, the thought finally occurred to me. Over the past few weeks, I have downloaded an app from the Apple iTunes store onto my iPhone. The app, Stigma is a social networking app that allows you to anonymously obtain pen pals. You have the option of self-selecting who you want to be your pen pal along with sharing the gift of getting to know someone different from you. I recently became pen pals with a male who was given the name “Lovely Panda” by default. (I will be referring to him as Panda).…

Out of 19,000 schools in Uganda, AAH is one of the best primary schools in the country, ranking in the top 1%. It is well structured, full of adequate materials to teach with, provides each student with a uniform and…

  • The Importance Of Writing As An Art

    are one if you do good research. Prior to this class I used to think that I had to write and rewrite multiple drafts of a paper in order to get it right. I would take the ideas in my outline format and sit down and pen my first draft. Next, I used to write the whole draft, get it critiqued, write another one, and ad infinitum until I got feedback that the writing was ideal or as good as it was going to get. After taking this class I now realize that the draft process is kind of antiquated. The…

  • Why I Write Research Paper

    But it was not the same drained feeling I got after venting all of my anger. This is good though. Death is not something that one just deals with right away and then forgets about it. This tragedy will stay with me for quite some time. Eventually it will not consume my thoughts and cause me to look at life differently but it will stay with me in the back of my mind. Maybe years down the road when I am teaching a high school English class, I will give my students an assignment that brings…

  • Zentangle Research Paper

    That’s because their face and their name are stored in separate areas of your left brain. It’s the job of the right side of your brain to recall those images and labels and put them together for you. That’s just one of the benefits of Zentangle drawing over just coloring in an outline on a page. Zentangle exercises those neural connections when you draw the tangles. Creating Zentangle art is really easy and fast. You traditionally work on a small 3 ½”x3 ½” quality paper tile that you can finish…

  • Reflection: Improving My Writing Class

    The read aloud of my different classmate’s examples also play a big role in this class for me. I was able to learn from their examples and class readings, incorporating different strategies into my own writing. I would not consider myself to be an awful writer, but I do would consider myself as a writer in the process. What do I mean by this? Well, as a writer, I have amazing ideas, but I seem to struggle putting my ideas and thoughts down on paper. Being that English is my second language I…

  • Personal Essay: My Writing Process

    Everyone has his or her own writing process. I believe that my writing process is ambitious because even though I struggle sometimes trying to get started, I don’t panic because I know that I will figure it out eventually. My writing process is like hitting a brick wall but once I get started I find my writing interesting. From the readings, I learned to write everything down in my first draft and not be ashamed of what I write. As you walk into my bedroom, the first thing that you see is my…
